Count Michelle Williams in for a possible sequel to The Greatest Showman.
“I would make another one of those in a heartbeat,” Williams told Variety in a recent cover story. “I wish they’d make a sequel.
“That movie brought so much joy.”
The Greatest Showman grossed $434.9 million globally thanks in part to its mega-selling album.
Anthems such as “This Is Me,” “The Greatest Show” and “Rewrite the Story” made the movie’s soundtrack ubiquitous.
“That movie brought so much joy to so many people and to make people that happy, man that is a worthwhile thing to spend your time doing,” Williams said. “I really love that movie. My daughter Matilda sang those songs. My mom is still listening to that soundtrack.”
“I love making things for kids that are full of joy and positivity,” Williams said.
Williams is also hoping to return as Eddie Brock’s estranged fiancee in both Venom and Venom: Let There Be Carnage, a role she’s hoping to reprise the next time the symbiote graces the screen.
“I have every intention of continuing with the series,” she said. “I certainly hope they bring me back.”
And those films present unique acting challenges. Venom: Let There Be Carnage, for instance, includes a scene where Williams is possessed by an alien symbiote.
“Pretending that a monster is getting into your body and then taking over and leaving your body, that’s hard,” she says.
“The stuff Tom [Hardy] does is really challenging,” Williams adds. “They’re big movies and he’s climbing a lot of mountains in them.”
